First time 650, second time 710!

Thanks for all the posts in these forums! I learned alot. I don't have anything to much to offer that hasn't been said already other than the following:

1. Take some Ginko biloba right before the exam
2. Afrin for you sinuses so you have good airflow.
3. Eat a banana because it is high in potassium.

I took the exam with a cold and sinus pain, so my suggestions reflect what I was doing to get up for the exam, but I think they are good suggestions for everyone.

The only thing I did different from the first exam and the second was to complete my review of the OG and Verbal guide. I also bought retired exams to to practice on.
